Is it permissible to talk about worldly matters inside
the masjid and at a time other than the salaat?
All praise is due to Allaah. It is not permissible to take
the masaajid as places of selling, trading, and their like
from the worldly affairs, in which the voices are raised.
Because the masaajid… they were built for the
remembrance of Allaah, recitation of the Qur’aan and
making of the salaat, in them. But it is permissible to
speak a little about worldly matters as long as it does
not distract the reciters (of the Qur’aan) or the one’s
making the salaat.
And with Allaah is all tawfeeq. And may the peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet
Muhammad and on his family and on his companions.
